Random Thoughts IX – Akanbi Odunayo Rhoda

Songs can drown echoes
Even roaring echoes of loneliness
But for how long?

Immerse yourself deeply into the icy waters of work
Plunge deeply into work and claim you’re busy
It would shut out the echoes
But for how long?

Surround yourself with a thousand dolphins and more
When they leave to their homes
What would you be left with?

Just this blank feeling
Which would only propel you
To dig deeper into holes you don’t want.

All that would be left
After all the distractions you saddle yourself with
Is the same echoes that you’d rather not hear.
